Apple, that doesn’t exhibit Watch sales data, says Watch sales are great

Apple Watch sales expansion is “off a charts” this holiday season, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook. 

“During a initial week of holiday shopping, a sell-through of Apple Watch was larger than any week in a product’s history. And as we expected, we’re on lane for a best entertain ever for Apple Watch,” Cook told Reuters in an email. 

Cook stopped brief of indeed divulgence any sales total for a Watch, that was upgraded to “Series 2” in September, alongside a new Nike-branded, sports-centric variant. 

This is not surprising: The association has never suggested any sales information for a Watch, bundling it with a “other products” difficulty in a gain reports. There have been utterly a few attempts to extrapolate what this means in numbers, though a law is that any of those attempts could be a few million units wrong possibly way. 

But reports contend a smartwatch marketplace is timorous fast

Cook’s comments come after reports that a smartwatch marketplace is timorous fast. On Monday, analytics association IDC released a report that claims that Apple Watch’s marketplace share has plummeted, from 17.5 percent in a third entertain of 2015 to 4.9 percent in a third entertain of this year. 

However, that news does not comment for Watch sales in a holiday season, nor a sales of a updated, Series 2 Watch version, so it’s utterly probable that Watch has gifted a large sales strike in Q4. 

Apple is not famous for prudery when it comes to braggadocio about sales data for a many successful product categories; maybe now that a Watch is violation records, Apple will finally tell us how many Watches it has sold.
